Bug Report / Feature request

Current Behavior
The events issue_comment.created or issue_comment.edited mentioned here in the github docs are not being logged.

// I'm using the wildcard * to log all events
app.on('*', async (context) => {
    context.log({ event: context.event, action: context.payload.action })

The events comment created or updated under an issue are not being logged.
The events new issue created, code pushed are being logged.

Expected behavior/code
There's supposed to be a webhook event emitted when there's a new comment under an issue


  • Probot version(s): 7.2.0
  • Node/npm version: v11.12.0/6.9.0
  • OS: Windows 10

Possible Solution

It's either implemented and I have some kind of problems with my probot configuration or it's not implemented. Please implement it if it's already not. Add a feature_request label to this issue.

@wilhelmklopp Thanks I understand that there are permissions now. But I think it was never mentioned in the docs as I followed the setup from the docs. Can you please update them mentioning this example that if a user wants to subscribe to issue_comment changes they first need to set up the permissions.
